I have activated the genius for Ipad and the message that It was a success never disappears . It is impossible to access the itunes or apple store. What can I do?

You have encounter Activation Lock, the antitheft feature of the iPhone. The previous owner did not remove the phone from their account. The phone cannot be used until they do. Return to the store and let them sort this out. It is very unusual for someone to "forget" to disable activation lock, as it is necessary to do so to erase personal information on the phone. So it is quite likely you bought a stolen phone.

  • HT1212 I have forgotten my passcode for ipad and itunes is not "detecting a device in recovery mode."

    I have forgotten my passcode for ipad and itunes is asking passcode to be entered - even after following directions for computers not synced... multiple times, but iTunes is not "detecting a device in recovery mode."  What do I do now?

    DFU Restore
    This will very likley result in loss of data.
    Plug the iPhone into the computer.
    Ensure that it is running the latest version of iTunes and that it has access to the internet.
    Press and hold both the home and sleep/wake buttons for exactly eight seconds.
    Release only the sleep/wake button but continue to hold the home button for another five seconds.
    Let go of the home button, then look at the computer screen for an instructional popup.
    The popup should say "iTunes has detected a device in recovery mode. . .(etc)"  Click accept to all boxes and let iTunes download and install all of the latest device Firmware and Software.
    If no popup appears, repeat the above DFU instructions.  If you've never done a DFU, it may take about three attempts to get the timing right.

  • After I update my ipad to the newest verison, I cannot purchase any games from apple store, what can I do?

    After I update my Ipad to the newest version iOS 6.0, I cannot buy any apps or games throught apple store.
    I remembered when I install the new version the device asked me if I want to use iCloud and I clicked "No",
    is it the reason I cannot download anything from apple store.
    Error message : Please contact itune for support.
    Could you please tell me what should I do now?  I want to buy the game very much!!

    Try a reset:
    1. Hold the Sleep and Home button down (together)
    2. For about 10 seconds
    3. Until you see the Apple logo (very important)

    lost number, help

    Blueberry's spot on (again brilliant, man!), I lost my paperwork as well but still had the receipt from the Apple Store.  I called AppleCare and they ended up issuing me a new serial number that they emailed to me and registered with their system. Easy as pie.

  • Is there a way my child can have their pass code for iPad and I have another code for settings and credit card info?

    My son got an iPad mini and he is 10 years old. Do I set it up as new with his own user name or is he too young? How can I set him up where hehas his pass code but I have one for parental controls? Can it be set up without attaching a credit card to the device as I plan to get him iTunes cards as allowance rather than have my cc attached

    No.
    Removing a device from a previous owner’s account
    You have to use the Apple ID and Password that was Originally used to Activate the iDevice..

  • I have just setup a new ipad and the first app I downloaded was ibook.  I pad says its installed but I can't find it.  any suggestions please?

    I have just setup a new ipad and first app I downloaded was ibook.  my ipad says its installed but I can't find it.  any suggestions please?

    For some reason this happens to some people.  The one thing that works is to reboot your iPad.  To reboot:  Press and hold BOTH the power and home buttons at the SAME time for at least 10 seconds (ignore the red slider) until the Apple Logo appears, then let go of both buttons and your iPad wil restart.  Once it's back up, I'm betting you'll see iBooks.

  • Can one ask for engraving for ipad and its case in retail store or it is just an online feature?

    I am wondering if I go to an apple retail store, can I ask for engraving for ipad and its case that I bought there? Or they are doing this only for online purchases.

    Many users have found that engraving reduces the resale value of iPads.

  • My ipad mini was stolen and i have activated the find my phone to lock it. how can i get the serial number off my itunes or icloud profile? and what are the chances that the find my iphone app works when someome erases the device?

    my ipad mini has been stolen and i have activated the find my iphone to lock. now it is only a wifi device so what are the chances that a person can get hold of it and log onto wifi without the password of my device to unlock. does that not make the app rather less useful as i have to hope that the person is apt enough to log onto the internet but not enough to erase it and start afresh. is it possible to find my device even afte someone has erased it?

    "Losing your iPhone feels lousy. Thankfully, iCloud can help you get it back. But if it looks like that’s not going to happen, new Find My iPhone features in iOS 7 make it harder for anyone who’s not you to use or sell your device. Now turning off Find My iPhone or erasing your device requires your Apple ID and password. Find My iPhone can also continue to display a custom message, even after your device is erased. And your Apple ID and password are required before anyone can reactivate it."

    Those are the instructions for your computer's iTunes (i.e. using the Store menu at the top of your computer's iTunes and selecting 'View My Account' on it). If you are doing it on your iPad then are you following the instructions for iOS devices :
    To unhide your purchases
    Depending on the content type, open the App Store, iBooks, or iTunes Store on your device.

    I've been using numbers for iPad and I accidentally deleted a column. And the auto-save feature saved that and now I can't undo it. Does iCloud storage have backups of saved files from like 10 minutes ago? I have numbers synced to iCloud.
    I tried to undo it but the app crashed.
    I am hoping there's like a previously saved version of my file in iCloud somewhere. 

    No, iOS does not do short term incremental back ups to iCloud such as you get with Time Capsule.It backs up when you do soo manually, or if set properly, when the device is plugged in and connected to WiFi. It will not have saved your changes as of 10 minutes prior.
